EZRA Logo

EZRA's Food and Hygiene Pantry operates with a client-choice model, allowing clients to chose their own foods on a weekly basis. The pantry distributes more than 3,000 food bags and 1,500 hygiene bags a year, and thanks a recent pantry expansion, we're looking for volunteers to help the pantry continue to run smoothly.

Availability Wednesday or Thursday Afternoon is necessary.

We ask that pantry volunteers make a minimum commitment of one shift per month every three months, but these shifts last no more than 2 hours. Of course, we encourage volunteers to come more often and to continue after three months, if desired.

A brief pantry orientation is required prior to volunteering. Please arrive promptly at 1:30pm.

You can also call Javanna Plummer at 773.467.3851 to be signed up over the phone or click "I want to help" above, and we'll reach out to you!
